economists and business leaders say could send the u.s. economy back into recession. here we have an interesting divide between wall street and washington. wall street seems to believe and you can take a look at the numbers on how the market has acted over the past year. wall street seems to believe that we'll avert this cliff. washington seems to be willing to drive over the cliff. >> i think there's -- i don't want to pick on the tea party per se. you can say if obama would suddenly give in on taxes. what i worry about is there are people who are ideological in the country and more focused on other issues than taxation and money. those people i think are very much out of sync with other people as we discovered last night from the election. they could care less about the fiscal cliff. i think some people want to go over the cliff. >> howard dean last night, sam on "squawk" a couple weeks ago saying maybe it's the best medicine for us is to drive over this thing, go into a recession, provide some bed for growth in the second half of the year. it's a gamble. >> $5 trillion in cuts.

no resolution in sight. one of those things we'll play chicken with the u.s. economy. we'll play chicken with the u.s. consumer and probably not get anything done. that is the uncertainty that looms over the market more than anything. melissa: here is the question people are asking me today, on election day, stocks are moving higher. it seemed pretty obvious during the day that barack obama was winning. what was the big change overnight? what was the hangover today? >> yeah. that was the goofy thing and that's why i think blaming barack obama's re-election today kind of a red herring. i don't know anybody would put capital at risk hoping romney to win having it get blasted today. this is realization we'll still not get anything done. romney coming into office, let's say he did win the problems don't go away because mitt romney steps into the oval office. the problems are still there. the business community not having confidence in the congress and administration to put forward a growth oriented environment. higher taxes are not big of a deal if we're growing the economy. the economy is g

no time on this issue today. fitch saying the u.s. needs to fix that debt threat and moody's says it's going to wait before taking any action and maintain its negative outlook on the u.s. economy. one thing is for sure. the stock market is taking the fiscal cliff very seriously. the blue chip average is off the lows but still down sharply at one time today, the dow was down about 369 points. first time we've seen that big of a decline since november 21st of last year. off the lows rights now, the dow down 260 points at 12,985. the nasdaq is down 63 points, a more than 2% decline at 2947. the s&p at this hour is down 28 points right at 1400. let's break down what's behind today's dramatic decline in stocks in today's "closing bell" exchange. we welcome back michael pento, kwint tatro, jeff sika, and our own rick santelli. quint, you believe the market was going to go down either way. why? >> i do. i think this was long overdue. we have been propped up with some incertauncertainty. it's kept the market saying, are we going to get a change? it didn't matter who won. we've been facing pr
for any u.s. company that's doing business with europe or sell things to europe. obviously, their revenues and their earnings are going to suffer from that. so that's a big it. and the other part of it is the concerns, the ongoing concerns about the fiscal cliff, meaning the automatic increase in taxes and spending cuts that are going to occur at the federal government left at the end of this year, unless something is done about it. and the belief is that, you know, with things being sort of unchanged in washington, obama winning, the republicans still controlling the house of representatives, the democrats controlling the senate, that it's business as usual and that we'll have trouble avoiding that fiscal cliff at the end of the year. that might mean bad things for the u.s. economy. so i think those are both very significant concerns, and weighed on investors today ask they obviously responded by selling stocks. >> sreenivasan: we heard late today grooeps passed its austerity measures through its parliament. is that likely to give the markets a bounce? >> yeah, i think you're going to get
